Players with the most catches in IPL history (2008-24)

1.Suresh Raina

 Acclaimed as one of the finest fielders in history, former Chennai Super Kings and India star Suresh Raina now owns the record for most catches in Indian Premier League (IPL) history. During the 2019 season, Raina became the first cricket player in the tournament’s history to record 100 catches. In 205 appearances, the renowned white-ball hitter claimed 109 catches overall.

2.Virat Kohli

 Virat Kohli, the batting champion for India and RCB, will have a fantastic opportunity to pass Raina on the list of “Most Catches by a Player in IPL History.” At now, Kohli holds the second position with 106 catches in 235 innings.

3.Kieron Pollard

 After Raina and Virat, Pollard is still one of the three players in the IPL to have more than 100 catches. In his 189-match career, which ended in 2022, he claimed 103 catches.

4.Rohit Sharma

 Rohit Sharma, a former captain and colleague of Pollard’s who has 98 catches in 243 matches, is closing in on the player.

5.Ravindra Jadeja 

 97 catches in 225 innings are what legendary fielder Ravindra Jadeja used to finish out the top-5 list.

6.AB De Villiers

 AB de Villiers, who piqued cricket fans’ interest with his 360-degree strokeplay and ‘Superman’ effort on the pitch, comes in at number six. In 184 IPL games, the former Proteas captain claimed 90 catches.

7.Shikhar Dhawan

 Shikhar Dhawan, a former Indian opener who has claimed 96 catches in 217 innings, comes after De Villiers.

8.Manish Pandey

 Manish Pandey, a gifted hitter for Karnataka, is ranked tenth with 81 catches in 170 innings. 

9.David Warner

 After Pandey comes David Warner, the IPL-winning captain of Australia and a pocket-sized dynamo who has grabbed 81 catches in 176 innings.

10.Dwayne Bravo

 With 80 catches in 160 innings, former West Indies and CSK all-rounder Dwayne Bravo completes the top ten.
